Use this Driveway Sensor to Alert You when Vehicles Enter Your Driveway

December 17, 2011 Leave a comment

Do you have a need to know when vehicles enter your driveway?

EMX VMD202-50 Driveway Sensor w/Adjustable SensitivityThis sensor is designed to be buried 6″ to 12″ deep and uses changes in the earth’s magnetic field to detect when vehicles pass over. Note this is not a presence detector but a motion detector – vehicles must be moving 5 mph or more in order to be detected. Its sensitivity is adjustable in 10 steps with a remote sensitivity adjustor to customize for your traffic pattern. The detector’s non-volatile memory retains the setting so the remote may be removed, thus reducing power consumption. This also prevents unwanted changes to your settings. At maximum sensitivity it has a 12′ detection range, depending on vehicle mass and speed. A green LED indicates power on, and the device can accommodate voltages between 9 to 41VDC or 6 to 29VAC. The output is a SPDT form C relay.

Garage Door Autocloser
Restore your peace of mind with the Autocloser-GA, an automatic garage attendant that automatically closes your garage door when you inadvertently leave it open. The Autocloser-GA incorporates the latest micro-controller technology, infrared light sensors and advanced software algorithms to deliver a safe and reliable product — yet it installs onto most garage door openers in minutes! There’s even a disable button you can press for those times where you do want to keep the garage door open. Only basic hand tools are needed for proper installation. The unit is AC powered (adapter included).

The Autocloser-GA monitors the garage door’s position and the disable button. When it senses that the garage door has been open for a set period of time (user selectable: 2, 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes)— and the disable button has not been activated — the garage door will close. The automatic closer does this by connecting to the terminals on the garage door opener wall button, thus simulating the press of a button.

The installation process for the Autocloser-GA is a simple process that takes approximately 20 minutes. The installation manual provides a step-by-step procedure, complete with illustrations. Only commonly available basic hand tools are needed for proper installation (drill, screwdriver, adjustable wrench and a wire cutter/stripper). Read more
